KISSIMMEE, Fla. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Matt Harvey worked two innings in his spring debut for New York, giving up two hits including a home run to former Mets outfielder Fernando Martinez, and the Houston Astros scored late in a 7-7 tie Sunday.

Houston starter Bud Norris also pitched two innings, giving up a home run to Jamie Hoffman.

George Springer drove in the tying run in the ninth but the game was called because the Mets’ split squad ran out of pitchers. Much of their team remained in Port St. Lucie to play the University of Michigan.

Jordany Valdespin’s two-run homer gave the Mets a 3-1 lead in the third, and they stretched it to 6-1 in the fourth when Josh Satin drove in two runs with the first of his two doubles.

The Astros tied it with the help of Jason Castro’s two-run homer off Jeremy Hefner.

The Mets will face the Nationals tomorrow at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie.
